ASTi Launches Virtual Classroom Training

June 10, 2014

Advanced Simulation Technology inc. (ASTi) recently launched virtual classroom training services by conducting a Voisus networked voice communications course for staff at the Joint Base Lewis-McChord Mission Training Complex (MTC) and the U.S. Army Program Executive Office of Simulation, Training and Instrumentation (PEOSTRI). An application engineer at ASTi's training center in Herndon, VA used Direct Connect Online ® (DCO), the DOD's enterprise collaboration tool, to conduct the training course over the Unclassified but Sensitive Internet Protocol Router Network (NIPRNet) for staff located in Tacoma, WA and Orlando, FL.

ASTi's virtual classroom training uses web-based video-audio conferencing, text chat, white-boarding, and screen and document sharing to link instructors and students. To gain hands-on experience, students can work with Voisus software hosted in a public cloud infrastructure.

"ASTi developed virtual classroom capability as an economical solution for our customers who's ability to travel is hampered by budget constraints", said Charles McCullough, ASTI's Director of Business Development.

In addition to virtual classrooms, ASTi conducts training at the company's headquarters in Herndon, Virginia and at customer sites around the world. Learn more about ASTi's training services at support.asti-usa.com/training.
